 A declaration of love from Xavier Vignon to the Southern Rhône Valley and the extraordinary 2016 vintage! A blend of five crus to match the roundness one one with the structure, the freshness, the aromatics and the deepness of the others.

94/100 - PARKER
"A blend of lots from five different Southern Rhône crus (and hence declassified to Côtes du Rhône), the 2016 Cotes du Rhone. Arcane VI Les Amourcaux is a stunning effort, showcasing raspberry and strawberry fruit, a silky-creamy texture and lush, mouthwatering flavors. No, it doesn't speak of the individual terroirs (Beaumes de Venise, Gigondas, Lirac, Rasteau, Vacqueyras), but it delivers sheer deliciousness."  

94+/100 - JEB DUNNUCK
"Sourced from parcels in Lirac, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Rasteau, and higher elevation sites in Beaumes de Venise, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Arcane Vi Les Amoureux (mostly Grenache) offers an awesome bouquet of black cherries, blackberries, pepper, garrigue, and olives. Beautifully textured, balanced, and layered, with fabulous purity, it's a rocking wine that has loads of fruit, yet has the purity and elegance that makes this vintage so special. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years."

Red berries, red flowers and a berry-pastry edge to the nose, making for an attractive offering. The palate has a super juicy feel with succulent, vibrant raspberry and red-plum flavors, carrying long on silky, powerful tannins. Impressive. Drink or hold.

94/100 - PARKER:
「這是一款來自南隆河谷五個不同特級產區(因此被降級為Côtes du Rhône)的混釀葡萄酒,2016年份的Cotes du Rhone. Arcane VI Les Amourcaux 是一款令人驚艷的作品,展現出覆盆子和草莓果味,絲滑順口的口感和豐富、令人垂涎欲滴的味道。它可能無法展現出各個特級產區(Beaumes de Venise、Gigondas、Lirac、Rasteau、Vacqueyras)的個別風土特色,但它帶來了純粹的美味。」

94+/100 - JEB DUNNUCK:
「這款葡萄酒來自Lirac、Vacqueyras、Gigondas、Rasteau以及Beaumes de Venise海拔較高的地塊,2016年份的Côtes du Rhône Arcane Vi Les Amoureux(主要由Grenache葡萄製成)展現出迷人的黑櫻桃、黑莓、胡椒、土壤和橄欖的香氣。口感悅人,平衡而層次豐富,純淨度極高,是一款令人雀躍的葡萄酒,兼具豐富的果味和這個特殊年份所獨有的純淨和優雅。未來的15-20年間可享用。」
